1984-06-02 [[Carlos De Leon]] w pts 12 [[Bash Ali]], Coliseum Arena, Oakland, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Henry Elesperu. Scorecards: 118-112, 118-112, 117-111. In control from the first bell, the champion had far too much ability for the outclassed Ali (190) and romped to an easy win without being pressed. De Leon (192½) had been expected to win early, but for whatever reason he rarely threw more than one punch at a time. Ali, who had been out of the ring for over a year after suffering a broken jaw, rarely threatened De Leon and was more often than not on the receiving end of the latter’s left jab.
